More Michael Jackson: "Democratization of Drink"

National Public Radio carried an item on Weekend Edition Sunday this week on recently-departed beer critic and enthusiast Michael Jackson. The piece included excerpts of a 1994 interview the show did with Jackson. Nice to hear his voice. He spoke about beer drinkers and wine enthusiasts beginning to occupy common ground in the marketplace. One quote:
" ... they've met in the middle, or they're in the process of meeting in the middle. So I think we have a democratization of drink"
Listen to the entire piece from Sunday at NPR's site, here.
